(He Loves you Personally)
TO THE BIBLE: Zephaniah 3:17
“The Lord your God in your midst, The Mighty One, will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.”
Did you know that God is excited about you? You need to take some time today to meditate on that. Some other people have been raised to think that God is only concerned about sin, and because there’s so much sin in the world, He’s mad at everybody; no! He’s not that way. God isn’t concerned about sin as many think. He was concerned about sin, and His concern about it made Him send Jesus.
When Jesus died on the cross, the problem of sin was dealt with forever. Therefore, for the believer in Christ, sin is no longer a problem. “For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him” (2 Corinthians 5:21). So you see, God isn’t mad at you; He settled the sin-problem in, and through, Jesus Christ and said, “For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace” (Romans 6:14).
What you need to do is to trust His righteousness. You’re the fruit, the result of Christ’s redemptive work. Accept and receive His righteousness into your spirit, and live continually in His glory and grace, knowing that He’s not mad at you, but excited about you. 2 Corinthians 5:19 says, “That is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.” This lets you know the mind of God. He’s not even mad at the sinner, let alone you that are born again! Therefore, get excited about God, because He’s excited about you.
Psalm 89:15-17; Job 8:20-21; Psalm 97:11-12
I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus; sin has no power over me. My heavenly Father rejoices over me with singing, and I bring Him joy and gladness today, pleasing Him in all things! I’m His crown and pearl of great value. Glory to God!
